FR SHEEHY’S JUVENILE GAA
Two titles in twenty four hours! Pride of place this week goes to the Fr. Sheehy’s u14 football team who captured the South and County u14c titles in the space of twenty four hours last weekend. Due to difficulties arranging the game at South Bord na nOg level the South final versus Commercials B was eventually played in Marlfield last Friday night. Backed by the strong breeze Fr. Sheehy’s gave a superb display of point scoring in the first half taking a lead of 1-13 to 1-1 to the break. Commercials piled on the pressure in the second period but Fr. Sheehy’s held out and took command again late on to capture a first title at this grade since 2004 on a score of 4-18 to 3-5.
The team then had to travel to Dundrum on Saturday afternoon to play West champions Emly in the county final and were fired up by the previous night’s win. Brilliant performances from James Conway, Ben Hyland, Jack Murphy and the free scoring Colin English saw Sheehy’s dominate the first half and hold Emly scoreless while scoring 3-6 themselves. Keeper Dylan Murphy had a quiet afternoon after making some brilliant saves the previous night. Defenders Nathan O’ Brien, David
Hyland, Aaron Enright and youngest player Gavin English kept the Emly attack under wraps. Up front Richard Maher, with a superb goal, Shane Connelly, Dylan O’ Brien and two goal South final hero Dion Morrissey were all involved in good moves while the rest of the panel included
Conor Walsh, Dylan Flynn, Robert Maher and Patrick Griffin. The final whistle saw Sheehy’s ahead by 5-17 to 0-4 and captain Colin English, scorer of an amazing 3-9, 2-13 and 4-11 in his last three games accepted the trophy from Joe Kennedy of Tipperary Bord na nOg before the jubilant players, mentors and supporte rs. Well done to all the panel and to team manager Seamus English and selectors David Hyland and Tommy Murphy.
Under 12. The u12 football team also saw action in in the latter stages of the county competitions travelling to Templetuohy last Wednesday night for the Premier Games playoffs. Fr. Sheehy’s had a good match with Moycarkey/Borris in the semi final but once again found the very talented Clonmel Og side too hot to handle in the final. Thanks to Frankie O’ Brien, Dick Maher and John Flynn for looking after the u12 football in 2012.
This year’s Kellogg’s Cul Camp will be held at Fr. Sheehy GAA Park from July 16 to 20. Application forms are now available from club officers. The cost is E55 for one child, E45 for the second and E40 for a third child or more in a family. Contact Mike 086-1700635 086-1700635 for more details.

FR SHEEHY’S GAA
Pride of place this week goes to our Under 14 Footballers who completed a South and County Double on Friday and Saturday respectively beating Commercials and Emly in the process. The South Final was captured on Friday night in Marlfield and less than 24 hour later in Dundrum the County Title was won. Well done to all concerned.
We received a walkover from Fethard on Sunday last in the intermediate Hurling championship. We are down to play Moyle Rovers on Saturday evening next in Goatenbridge at 6pm.
On Friday, June 1, we played Grangemockler in the 3rd Round on the Intermediate Football Championship. After a good display with some nervous moments at the end we came away with a 1-17 to 3-9 victory. We have two remaining games against Ballyporeen and Commercials to play.
On Saturday, June 2, one of our longest serving players Liam Fleming married Linda English in Clogheen. We offer our heartiest congratulations to this popular couple and wish them all the best for their future life together. Liam spent his last night as a single man playing a major contribution in our victory over Grangemockler.
